Winter returns next week

So changes are about to occur and a relapse back to wintry weather is a very real posssibility by Monday with frost and ice and a bitter Northerly wind set to return. Where uncertainty arises is in what form snow occurs - showers or a longer period of sleet and snow. But it is a real possibility that many areas will see snow at least for the beginning of next week and possibly through the week but much more uncertain after Tuesday.





More later.

Keep posting!
Everytime you do it lately we get spring [which by the way I'm delighted with].

Im a bit more certain this time - though in fairness I did say two weeks ago there was a snow risk next week. How flukey is that?

I want some real warmth at this stage with some big bastard storms.

Snow can go to hell for all I care at this time of year.

I think the chances of the GFS scenario verifying are less than we're making out. It always takes cold 850s too far south, so I think we'll see major downgrades over the weekend. The ECMWF and UKMO would suggest this too, though there's huge uncertainty among them all.

Positioning and depth of that low seems very uncertain over the last few runs. Will probably deepen, fill and shift location in later runs, but as it stands currently, that chart would bring genuinely nasty feeling weather with cold rain/showers with some sloopy wet sleety type snow at times on the northern edge of the occlusion.

Half weather as opposed to full on.

Trust Darkman for the controversial eye opening thread titles albeit exaggerated

There is nothing exaggerated about it, nor any of my posts.

Jean mentioned nothing about cold. Maybe her presence was keeping the temps un-naturaly high.
